David Gordon Green and Danny McBride are writing the script for the latest highly anticipated Halloween film. That might initially cause you some concern, but with Blumhouse behind it, and John Carpenter himself directly involved, we’ve got a chance of seeing a truly high quality franchise installment (about time!) head our way soon.
And speaking of soon, we’ve actually now got a date for the film’s arrival! But don’t let me tell you, let’s let the living legend himself, John Carpenter fill you in!
“So you say you want a Revolution?
You want to shake things up and bring back Halloween and make it rock again?
Well so do I.
So here’s the announcement you’ve all been waiting for:
David Gordon Green and Danny McBride are joining the project to complete the creative team. David and Danny will write the script together and David will direct. I will continue in my executive producer role to consult and offer my advice and feedback as needed.
David and Danny both came to my office recently with Jason Blum and shared their vision for the new movie and…WOW. They get it. I think you’re gonna dig it. They blew me away.
I might even do the music. Maybe. It could be kind of cool.
And you’ll get to see it in theaters on October 19th, 2018.”
